This might have something to do with a certain taco eating contest or just my general lapse in nutritious eating, but I've really been craving some healthy eats. When I think of health food, I instantly think of quinoa. It's a complete protein (very important for vegetarians) and packed full of fiber, magnesium and iron. Somewhere along the way, quinoa fell out of my regular rotation of food and I really don't know why, because besides being undeniably nutritious, it's also quick and delicious. A simple ratio of one part quinoa to two parts water and a cooking time of 15 minutes and you've got your quinoa ready to eat. I sauteed some farm fresh asparagus and sliced red onions to complete my salad. I diced up a few roasted rainbow carrots and romanesco florets that I had leftover, but really any vegetable would work. I tossed my fluffed quinoa with my vegetables together and for flavoring added a squeeze of lemon juice, cumin powder and a handful of mint leaves.
